“everything we know about the brain is based on the brain itself.”

I have been awake for the last three months.  I wasn’t eating for two.

Half of it’s the steroids… but most of it’s my brain; my mysterious, inflamed and invisible enemy dancing in my head.  The chemo hasn’t shown up yet to break up the party, you see.

My name is Elena and I am showing you my face:  My Lupus Face.  There.  I’ve said it.  I’ve said it and you’re going to see it.  I am the lab rat of your dreams.  

The curtain rises on the final movie in the “Lupian Trilogy” and the battle field is raging:  The Battle of the Brain.  And they thought the body was hard.  Ha.
